Sommer Cable Introduces New USB-C Solutions at InfoComm

AOC USB3.2 Cable Transmits Video and Power Up To Eight Meters

Sommer Cable exhibits at InfoComm for the first time its new package of USB-C solutions: 10G USB 3.2 hub for integration, compact 4-way 85 watts USB power supply, and the highly flexible USB-C 3.2 premium cable series up to 8 m (26 ft.) long. This comprehensive USB-C package meets the most up-to-date requirements and standards in the IT, work, education, and conference sectors.

While USB-A could only support up to 2.5 watts and 5 volts, USB-C now supports 100 watts and 20 volts for larger devices. The practical benefits of this include pass-through charging — effectively a USB hub that powers laptops, and also charges other devices simultaneously.

Sommer’s own Cardinal DVM brand presents this compact, integrable 10G USB 3.2 hub as a clip-in module for the SYSWALL-45 switch frame series. It fits perfectly into the in-house SYSFRAME45 desk installation frames and the SYSTRUNK duct profiles as well as into all other common 45 mm connection units such, as Smarthome modules, etc.

Four color variants in matt white, high-gloss white, charcoal grey, and alu silver ensure the most inconspicuous, seamless integration into furniture and wall connection panels. Four connections with the full 10G bandwidth are available as 2 x USB type-A and 2 x USB type-C ports on the front side, which also deliver 30 W of charging power for connected terminal equipment (even if the host is not connected) and are downward compatible with USB1.1/2.0. On the back there is a USB type-C upstream port as well as an additional power supply connector for Power Delivery. The host is supplied with up to 60 watts of charging power.

Another component of Sommer’s new product range is the DVM-194-PS5 USB-C power supply, which uses GaN technology for fast, efficient and simultaneous charging of multiple USB-C and USB-A devices – at home, at the office or on the road – via only a single power outlet.

Sommer offers a total system power of 85 watts and distributes it smartly across four connections: 2 x USB-A (max. 18 watts), 2 x USB-C (max. 65 watts & 20 watts). The highest possible specifications/charging standards (Quick Charge 2.0 & 3.0, Apple 12W, BC1.2, AFC, FCP, SCP, MTK, PPS) and power delivery are met to cope with the current array of varying charging power and data capacity of various manufacturers. Owing to the super compact design and the detachable AC cable, the power supply is perfectly suitable for integration into furniture and behind connection panels.

Sommer Cable also provides highly flexible USB-C cables with the high bandwidth needed for full USB3.2 specs, including the capacity to transmit video and power. While copper cabling with this capability can only work at short distances, Sommer’s HI-UAOC active-optical-cable is currently unique in the market, as it
supports USB-Data with 10G, DP-Alt mode with 4K60 image-data, as
well as PowerDelivery up to 60W. All of this this is transmitted through one single cable at distances of up to eight meters.
